If you enjoy Camping and old VW Buses then this one might be for you. Oregon’s Dub Box is set to become the latest caravan maker to get in on the smaller, lighter trend. Only its smaller, lighter camping trailer won’t be the average teardrop, box or utility bed. It’ll be a shortened version of the timeless Volkswagen Bus. Compared to the original Dub Box, the 454-kg Dinky Dub loses close to 1 m of length, a pair of windows and a whole lot of price.
Box doesn’t have a legacy with the breadth of Airstream’s, but its trailer motif certainly does. The company specializes in VW Type 2-inspired pop-top fiberglass camping trailers. The trailers provide an option for those that love the looks of the classic VW Bus but want to camp in something simpler and more modern than a restored vintage camper bus.
Dub Box is still finalizing the design and the aforementioned specs are subject to change. It hasn’t priced out all the options just yet, but it estimates that the base trailer will start at US$12,800 when it arrives in 2017, much lower than the $22K base of its larger trailer.
